Oh, the suspense.

My temperature went up today. It never goes up at 13 dpo - it always drops.

BUT my pulse is crazy slow, I'm not hungry, and my cervix is lower this morning. So, not pregnant.

But what's with my temp? Is it possible for implantation to happen as late as 12 dpo?

I am so confused. Take a look. This first one is this month's chart:

And the second one is an overlay of four cycles... this cycle is the one in turquoise:

So, what's your opinion?

I have been stalking you, and yes...your chart looks super different than your other ones.
And implantation dips can occur that late I think (though I could be wrong)
Hang in there. *fingers crossed*

I say wait for the blood tests...and know that this is why I hate POAS and stay faithful to beta hcgs.

Just my opinion, but progesterone and trigger shots can alter temps and charts and make you think symptoms are there. So really the only way to do it, is to get a blood test.

oh man this is a tough one. the prog could be messing with you. BUT this chart is very different overall, so i'm hoping you POAS again tomorrow...

the prog cream made TTC really tough for me--i don't know if you remember, but i always had these amazing charts that then *bam* temp drop and AF. and of course i took it even harder b/c i had gotten my hopes up. so i'm begging you, try to stay as neutral as you will either be pleasantly surprised, or at worse, confirm what you already think.

will be checking on you tomorrow!

ok, I am certainly no expert on the cervix issue but I have read that it isn't a reliable indicator of preg or lack thereof since it rises at different times for different women.

I think this is why I gave up charting!

It does look good though. . .

I don't know what to think. BUT, I know what MY HOPE is!!!
I really want this to be your month and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Temping does serve some important purposes, such as determining ovulation, LPD and other such things.

But it can also make you crazy. Because temp dips and rises at any point, in and of themselves, don't mean much.

You could have a temp dip at 12 dpo and have that be implantation because it took a few days for it to effect your temp. And, it could be going up because you are pregnant.

I don't know, I just know it made me nuts, analyzing everything all the time.

I hope this is the last chart you need to analyze. :)

Your chart looks awesome
